A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

V&A Museum of Childhood – London, England

Britain’s national collection of childhood objects are available to peruse online at V&A Museum of Childhood.

While the Museum is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, it offers online archives and play-oriented activities and continues its mandate to engage audiences in the material culture and experiences of childhood. Here’s what captured our attention:

Engaging Collections

Explore dolls, dollhouses, games, construction toys, and more. The Museum offers a glimpse at the history of playthings and their role in childhoods past and present.

Playful Activities

A variety of hands-on activities to inspire creativity and play. Learn how to make a mobile, build a dragon, create a paper rose, and other activities suitable for children and adults.

Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
